It doesn't take a genius to know and understand that 2020 & 2021 have been difficult years for different reasons. At the very least, Covid has really thrown almost everything into complete chaos; from travel restrictions, to lockdowns, to supply chain shortages that affect almost everything we as consumers purchase, to many health challenges for friends and family members. As a business owner, I have never known times like this as it relates to business. As a photographer, travel was in the beginning, nonexistent, and now that people have been locked down and restricted for sometime, people have gotten cabin fever. I don't know if anyone can quite put their finger on the cause (multiple causes) of all of this craziness, but I certainly hope this is not the new normal.
My travels in the last 2 years have been limited unfortunately, and not necessarily for reasons related to Covid. It has been a difficult season for my family making travel at times almost impossible. I am thankful to say that now, things are much better and hopefully 2022 will be filled with more photographic adventures. I purchased a tear drop camper that should make for some interesting trips and allow me to have a comfortable base camp from which to do day trips. But I still enjoy backpacking and getting to places not easily accessible for most people without a lot of planning and physical effort.
I hope to have new images soon from places with a day's drive very soon. Already looking at some Coastal trips to South Carolina and Georgia, and hope to get down to Florida to explore some new places as well.
Also as a sidetone, I have 7 new images in the Gallery that will be ready for sale next week. Also have some prints from the Gulf Coast of Florida and Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Those should be arriving in 4 to 6 weeks. Here are some new photos from our last few trips:
